Honeymoon in Botswana

There are many ways to enjoy a romantic holiday in Botswana

There are some leading safari lodges on private islands in the Okavango Delta, which are remote and inaccessible with sophisticated spas, luxury suites, exclusive service and private airstrips, which cater for honeymooners and other romantic celebrators. These world-renowned locations come at a price, but if romance in the African wilderness is what is desired, they deliver.

Romance is easy in Botswana

For a more laid back approach to a romantic Botswana holiday, the Makgadikgadi salt pans have some of the most impressive scenery in the country. Timing a trip with the dry season will ensure that these vast and empty pans are at their best, and simply watching the sun set over the flat, white earth and admiring an impossible number of stars is mesmerising. Further north in the Okavango Delta, in the high water season, mokoro cruises are idyllic and undeniably romantic, and private dinner on an island at the end of the cruise seals the experience. Flights over the Delta in a small 4-seater plane also rank highly in terms of romance.

There are many options for the romantic at heart in Botswana
